Advocacy Description: 

Dalhousie Legal Aid Service has been in operation since 1970, and is the only community law clinic in Nova Scotia. The Clinic is a unique partnership of community groups, law students, community legal workers and lawyers working together.

Dalhousie Legal Aid Service does community outreach, education, organizing, lobbying and test case litigation to combat injustices affecting persons with low incomes in Nova Scotia. Community groups and community based agencies with mandates to fight poverty and injustice may apply for legal advice, assistance, and community development and education services. They offer advocacy workshops and legal information sessions. They work with other groups to lobby the government on social assistance policy and other policies negatively affecting persons with low incomes.
